THE Donkey Breed Society NI (DBSNI) will be holding their next Award Training day (the Elementary Award) on Saturday, September 22 near Saintfield. This is a continuation on from the Introductory Award that was extremely well supported and was held in April.
If you haven’t completed the Introductory Award and would like to before taking part in the training for the Elementary Award Training, this can be arranged on the same day.
The Elementary Training will consist of two guest speakers discussing donkeys health, recognising when your donkey is unwell and feet management. Also, there will be a focus on paddock management, bridle cleaning and a short demonstration on long-reining.
Please bring a pack lunch with you. Tea and coffee will be provided on the day. Please ensure you wear sensible footwear and clothing for this event.
If you are interested in attending or to find out more, please get in touch by Saturday, September 8 through our Facebook Page -The Donkey Breed Society NI. You do not have to be a member to attend the training, but organisers would ask for a donation of £5 per non-member. Everyone is very welcome, both juniors and adults and there is no need for you to bring a donkey.
Start time to be confirmed.
